Two New Buddy Benches Donated to Tecumseh Compass

Tecumseh Compass Learning Center received a donation of two new Buddy Benches from the Curt Orlowski & Dakota Gonzales Foundation on Tuesday. The Foundation donated them, one for each playground at the school, after Co-Principal Angel Mensing reached out to them. But the need for the benches was not Mrs. Mensing's idea.

Mrs. Mensing was following through on a request from 3rd grader Andrew McInchak, who saw a need for the benches, after having seen how well they worked last year at his old building. Andrew was very hands on with the project, helping to unload each bench and picking out their locations personally at each playground.

Thank you once again to the Curt Orlowski & Dakota Gonzales Foundation for their generous donation.
